I was contacted by Irodori Comics directly to help promote their newly unveiled doujinshi website which includes LGBT+ themed stories.
Here is the announcement by Irodori Comics:
IRODORI COMICS TO LAUNCH ALL AGES DOUJINSHI ONLINE STORE “IRODORI LITE”
Products to be sold on website include non-erotic and LGBTQ+ oriented digital doujinshi
OREGON, USA – JULY 5, 2020 – US-based Japanese doujinshi publisher, Irodori Comics, is pleased to announce the launch of the IRODORI LITE website dedicated to offering high-quality, all ages doujinshi and LGBTQ+ oriented doujinshi for digital purchase. Users can create an account on the website and start purchasing works immediately. As a direct sales channel, IRODORI LITE provides Western fans opportunities to support their favorite doujinshi artists by ensuring higher royalties for artists with each purchase.
Together with the launch of the website, IRODORI Comics is beginning its rewards program, which allows people to earn points with purchases that can be traded in for future discounts. As part of the launch campaign of the website, all new accounts created on IRODORI LITE until the end of August will receive 250 complimentary points as a token of appreciation.
All existing Irodori Aqua (non-erotic doujinshi imprint) titles currently available on Amazon Kindle and ComiXology will be made available for purchase at the IRODORI LITE website on launch. In addition to these, three new all-ages works under the Irodori Sakura label (LGBTQ+ doujinshi imprint) make their debut:
New releases for each imprint will be announced on the Irodori Aqua and Irodori Sakura (NSFW) Twitter accounts. Aside from posting updates, both Twitter accounts also share topics that raise awareness on non-erotic doujinshi in the manga industry and the growing trend of LGBTQ+ representation in Japanese doujinshi.
